Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery - LTX9-BS LION
Customer Product Reviews
Incredibly lightweight, almost comical. Didnt fit properly in my zx6r - a few mm taller than the stock yuasa, so couldn't tighten down the fuel tank bracket. Unfortunately, the shido failed after 2 months without use, So without doubt the worst battery I've had in 25 years.
Service was brilliant, kept up to date with my order and delivery. Product arrived quickly. Battery itself was impressively light in comparison to my standard one and was a straight simple swap. Huge recommendation for an easy weight saving.

Great item, great price
Having previously bought a Shido lithium ion battery this choice was a no brainer. Less than half the weight of lead acid, same size and direct fitment. Self discharge is very low and doesn't need charging many times if over wintering the bike. Does need a Lithium ion specific battery charger otherwise battery could be damaged if charged with a voltage higher than 15V.
Light weight and great value
My old battery was failing to charge after repeated bump starting the bike that a new charger couldn't fix, so a new battery was required for my CBR600F. I found a few for similar prices but this was the only Lithium one, so i thought i'd give it a go. it weighed in at 770grams, which was 2.2kg lighter than the old battery, so a big saving. The battery arrived fully charged and had a lot more power, cranking the bike over and starting a lot more quickly than before - even when the old battery was charged.
New Battery for my precious Bandit.
My poor Bandit wouldn't come to life. I knew that the Sportbikeshop would get it singing a good tune again and ordered the new Shido Lithuim battery under advice from your helpful chaps. The battery was light and easy to fit with easy to tighten clamps. Sure enough when fitted it struck a beautiful note when struck up. It also came off choke quicker than normal due to a good strong 12 volts supply. My neighbours all agreed they had missed the sound especially on a Sunday morning .
Best option available
I'm loyal to these batteries because they're cheap, lightweight and haven't been too fragile to being ran flat and recharged. The charge indicator is reliable and overall the best option for any bike. I'm told they like being warmed up before cranking so running headlights for a few seconds before turning over is advisable.
Standard acid battery in the bike was on its last legs and wanted a lithium battery for a while so decided on the shido. Great but if kit, super light (feels fake/empty) and the bike cranks harder and starts easier so win win. The led battery level indicator is super helpful too, saves having to get the multimeter out. Great price and service from Sportsbikeshop as always too, had it in my hand the next day!
